    TA test question

    I am using the TF 100 TA test, And Im inbetween calling the results 120 or 130 TA based on color, 130 is a Dark Red pink while 120 is a definite change in color. Not sure it matters much but which would you go with?

    New owner AZ, first water change

    Very good info thank you! Since my CYA is 30 and the chart says 12 for SLAM, is it as simple as FC of 12 should give me 9 days? 12-9=3 I understand there might be other variables as well.

    New owner AZ, first water change

    My average loss this time of year has been 1 FC per day, If I needed to leave town for the weekend or a week, how many tabs should I float? Is there a formula to calculate with? (I understand that tabs will increase my CYA)

    New owner AZ, first water change

    I'm sitting good right now with all my levels getting into the swing of testing and adding chlorine daily, I was just curious what dictates when to raise my CYA from 30 to 60? Should I wait till spring/summer? Im using approx 1 FC per day currently.
